powerful leaders like egypt's hosni mubarak and libya's moammar gadhafi, and unleashing a flood of illegal weapons. >> when gadhafi was falling, i was there at the time, i had never seen so many weapons in my entire life. and they were just being taken from depots, they were being handed over to militant groups. and then they went all over the region. they went from country to country, and they fell into the hands of militant groups. and this is no longer theoretical. seven americans have been killed, including a u.s. master, just in the last four months. >> call it the downside of the arab spring. revolutions that the u.s. are actively, tacitly supported in places like libya and egypt have left shaking governments in place and more instability to an already volatile region. delaware democratic senator chris coons shares the senate foreign relations subcommittee on africa and he joins me now. senator coons, thank you so much for being on the program. >> thank you, luke. >> i want to ask you, we were very much supportive here in the united states two years ago, on the two-year anniversary o

hosni mubarak was forced from power and now people seem to, some of them anyway, want to see another overthrow happen on the streets of egypt. conor powell is following all of these developments for us. good morning, conor. >> reporter: well, martha, it has been six days of growing protests and violent riots. now the anger on the street really stems from the slow pace of political and economic reform. on sunday night the current president, mohammed morsi, declared martial law in three cities, including suez, the major shipping hub. he defended the emergency law calling it necessarily but it is eerily similar to the ones imposed on egyptians for the three decade long rule of angelo mozilo, -- hosni mubarak, former strong man. they were taking to the streets protesting against the moresy government. egyptians say morsi is becoming another hosni mubarak with islamic face. martha, morsi offered a hand to the opposition to engage in dialogue. that offer was quickly rejected. martha: how is the military responding to all of this, conor? >> reporter: the top general, top military commander
this goes against the revolution that toppled former president hosni mubarak. so they're unhappy and demanding a change from president morsi. >> lama, we heard that emergency law was ordered in three provinces in egypt. has that been enforced? >> exactly. despite this emergency law that was announced in the three provinces, the protesters defiantly took to the streets overnight and what sparked the violence over the weekend, particularly in port saed, was a verdict that sentenced 21 die-hard soccer fans to death for storming the field and attacking a rival team resulting in a blood bath. this took place last february. within minutes of the verdict, family members went on a rampage attacking police stations and government buildings. police fired back, killing at least 32 people and injuring hundreds. the army moved in to try to seize control. of course, egypt's cabinet has given the army more powers now, especially the power of arrest. but it is clear from the protesters that the fact that they defied this emergency law is a clear message to the president that they're not going an
, we are going to fulfill our obligation that was signed when hosni mubarak was in office, to deliver them a lot in weapons, to almost a billion dollars worth of f-16s and tanks. >> steve: yeah. it's extraordinary because keep in mind, like brian said, we did this deal in 2010 with hosni mubarak, who was our ally even though it is egypt and egypt and israel have always had a tenuous relationship. now the guy in charge in egypt is this morsi character. he's the president. he used to head up muslim brotherhood, which hates israel and, in fact, they want to teach the kids to hate the jews and he's said of the united states that barak obama is a liar. we're giving the united states 20 of these f-16s. is that a good idea? hannity last night had a fighter pilot on who showed just what a lethal machine this is and now egypt has got 20 of them coming. >> it's equipped with a internally mounted 20-millimeter bulk and can infant this is the size of a 20-millimeter shell and it can fire these shells at the rate of 100 rounds per minute. in addition to being effective air combat mission, the f-16
